"I can't help her now. She's lost. Her friends, they're followers, not leaders. They'll just go along, enabling her self-destruction. Maybe there will be an intervening moment, something to shake her soul. I'm hopeful, but not necessarily sold on the idea. She was wrong, but she'll never admit it and I've left her not much of an opening."

For what purpose? She doesn't love you and you allow her to use you, encourage it, actually. You're either a mendacious genius, incomprehensibly stupid or zealously masochistic. But maybe it doesn't really matter to you, as long as you get what you want, whatever that may be."

"Those in need of Viagra or Cialis need not apply."

"Yeah, he's a huge problem."

"Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration."
-- Thomas Edison
